NASA will host a pair of news conferences Tuesday, July 25, at the agency’s Johnson Space Center in Houston to highlight upcoming crew rotations missions to the International Space Station.

The briefings will cover NASA’s SpaceX Crew-7 mission to the space station, currently targeted to launch Tuesday, Aug. 15, for a science mission aboard the microgravity laboratory.

The mission overview news conference will begin at 12:30 p.m. EDT, and a crew news conference will start at 2 p.m. Both briefings will air live on NASA Television, the NASA app, and the agency’s website. The crew also will be available for individual interviews at 3:30 p.m.

Crew-7 mission

The Crew-7 mission will carry NASA astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli, ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Andreas Mogensen, JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) astronaut Satoshi Furukawa, and Konstantin Borisov of Roscosmos.

In addition to the Crew-7 participants, NASA astronaut Loral O’Hara also will participate in the crew briefing and interviews. Following a month later, O’Hara will launch to the space station on Sept. 15 for a mission with Roscosmos cosmonauts Oleg Kononenko and Nikolai Chub.

For the Crew-7 mission, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft will launch from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on the company’s seventh crew rotation mission for NASA. O’Hara will launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
